I presume you're referring to the Jupiter 8 engine?

Poly 2 cuts off any played notes in the release phase and re-triggers the envelopes when a new note is played. Poly 1 allows the release stage to complete.

E.G. In Poly 2 Mode, play a C chord with a long release, then play a G chord - the C chord will immediately cut off when G is played.

In Poly 1 Mode the C chord isn't cut off (it'll continue the release phase while you play the new G chord).

I assume you mean JP-8 Poly mode 2?

Poly mode 1 plays each note with it's own natural release length.

Poly mode 2 plays the last note or notes played together at their own natural release length. All previous notes receive instantaneous release.
